Harrisvaccines Awarded Vaccine Product Licensure
Date:9/20/2012

AMES, Iowa, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Harrisvaccines announces United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) licensure of the company's swine flu vaccine, approved by the Department's Center for Veterinary Biologics (CVB) for disease caused by swine influenza virus (SIV) H3N2.

"When we submitted our license application in 2009, the USDA didn't have an established category into which the product fit," said Jodi French, USDA Liaison at Harrisvaccines.  "There were additional regulatory hoops to jump through in order to achieve this first license."

In addition to USDA licensure of the vaccine, Harrisvaccines received a United States Veterinary Biologics Establishment License, #592, which approves the Ames-based facility for future manufacture of new vaccines for a broader spectrum of veterinary applications, from swine and cattle to companion animal and farmed aquaculture. 

"We were founded in 2006, so this has been a long, challenging road to licensure for a novel technology to be used in animal health," Harrisvaccines founder and President Dr. D.L. "Hank" Harris said. "These USDA licenses mark a major
